DESCRIPTION

  • CARTIER FINE WATCHMAKING BREAKS NEW FRONTIERS

    Fine Watchmaking and High Jewellery: the confluence of Cartier’s two founding fields will be the highlight of the 2016 edition of the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie. A unique creative partnership has thus been initiated between High Jewellery, with all the flamboyance of its gemstones, the power of its style and the expertise of its craft, and Fine Watchmaking, with its attention to detail and its emblematic watches and complications.

    Master watchmakers and master jewellers, facing the same constraints and driven by the same ambitions, merge their skills to create five extraordinary jewellery watches on the boundaries of both worlds. The panther tries its hand at the complication game, with two watches that transpose Cartier’s supreme expertise into a narrative register. Enamel granulation, the latest addition to the collection of Cartier artistic crafts, introduces a rich diversity of chromatic range to the Maison’s iconic feline. Five Fine Watchmaking signature watches illustrate the creative dynamism of the 2016 Salon, hoisting the twin banners of technical prowess and aesthetic progress to new heights. Finally, since experimenting with shape has always been at the heart of Cartier watchmaking, the Maison has decided to unveil the new Hypnose and Drive de Cartier watches at the Salon.

    With a focus on thirteen distinctive creations and two new collections, traditional definitions have been shaken up in the celebration of a new multi-faceted expertise that combines High Jewellery and Fine Watchmaking. The mysterious has extended its magic beyond the limits of imagination, blurring previously finite boundaries in an exploration of new creative territories. The force of Cartier’s watchmaking expertise can be measured by the depth of the emotion it inspires.

    Dynamics of Cartier’s Fine Watchmaking signatures

    The force of ambition and the spur of growth and expansion are the driving characteristics of Cartier Fine Watchmaking, which have led to the creation of forty-five movements in under ten years. The challenge was taken on in record time and bears unlimited prospects for the future.

    Today, this dynamism finds its strongest expression through the release of signature watches that shine  with  the outstanding character  of Fine Watchmaking.

    Astromystérieux, Skeleton, Crash, Rotonde Earth and Moon... These are terms that immediately identify a common denominator: Cartier, with all its history and its knack for matching an era with a style, the past and present with the future, daring with discipline, solid with void, earth with moon, technique with emotion.

    ROTONDE DE CARTIER Earth and Moon

    CALIBRE 9440 MC

    Through the open-work architecture of its dial and the unique complication of its movement, the Rotonde de Cartier Earth and Moon watch follows in the highest tradition of Cartier Fine Watchmaking, concentrating some of its most distinctive aesthetic and technical signatures.

    It owes its name to the presence of its two sub-dials representing the Earth and the Moon, both cut out of polished meteorite stone, chosen by Cartier to enhance the model’s astral theme, initiated in 2014 with a first version made of platinum and lapis lazuli.

    With this double imagery, the Rotonde de Cartier Earth and Moon watch juxtaposes two indications through an audacious interplay of displays: on one side, a terrestrial display showing local time and a second time zone indication represented by a 24-hour disc; on the other, a lunar display with inter-dependent tourbillon and on-demand Moon-phase indications.

    This movement required the development of made-to-measure solutions on the part of Cartier. The push-piece at two o’clock provides a straightforward way of adjusting the second time zone indication.

    For its part, the push-piece at four o’clock activates on demand a disc that slides across to conceal the tourbillon cage. The crescent thus formed reproduces exactly the Moon’s shape in the sky with accuracy offset by just 1 day every 126 years.

    Together, the complications of the Earth and Moon watch, presented this year in a pink gold version, make up a creative and vivacious universe in which its skeletonised Roman numerals underline Cartier’s dynamics for Fine Watchmaking.
